355ml bottle (Maltainen Riekko, Helsinki)
Lovely soft mouthfeel. Nice gentle roasty aroma. Great smooth roasty taste, just a hint of coffee. Burntness clear, but not astringent at all. Great drinkable porter. Supports my view that the US does the best porters in the world.

Pitch black opaque color. Smell like a real heavy stout, but it tastes lighter then it smells. Oily texture, low carbo and body but a fine taste.

[thank you, after4ever]
Pours deep deep - almost black with a great beige creamy head. Aroma is oats, dark chocolate. The oats are very apparent. Mouthfeel is initially quite lively, but turns much more creamy. Flavour has oats, chocolate, biscuit (a touch of metal), weak coffee. But the overall impression is a bit lacking and the oats are far too apparent.
